and national affairs editor for new york magazine, emmy darling john heilemann, former pennsylvania governor and current governor of "now," governor ed rendell. msnbc contributor and queen bee of the grio.com joy reid and editor of the new york tiles sunday magazine, mr. sunday morning himself hugo lindhgren. call it the november surprise. in 90 minutes, president obama will hold his first press conference since re-election and he will be holding it amid circumstances no one could have predicted. just one week after america gave him a second term, at a time of high stakes negotiations over the so-called fiscal cliff, the president will likely face questions about a salacious sex scandal involving the now former cia director. >> does the president see this in general as an unwelcomed distraction at a time when he's just -- was re-elected and has a bunch of priorities in terms of the fiscal cliff and in terms of his cabinet? >> well, i certainly i think wouldn't call it welcome. obviously the, as i said to ben, the information about general petraeus came to him as a surprise. >> not exactly we
is that john of the other republicans ever liked mitt romney and he didn't do anything during the campaign to endear himself to them. don't forget, he attacked them all in the primaries. this is kind of the revenge of the clowns here. he knocked them off one at a time. he sort of knocked them over in iowa and elsewhere around the campaign trail. number two, his campaign was based on a negative. it was based on the idea that he would have to win because president obama was so bad. there was no philosophy to it. mitt romney's campaign was kind of the end of the line of the conservative era that began coherently with ronald reagan in 1980. mitt romney was the ultimate remainder man. that's why they have an easier time of dumping on him right now. >> so the clown car has backed up to run over mitt romney. that's the image for the night tonight. >> yes, it is. >> like that woman who didn't like her husband, remember she drove over her husband in the parking lot and drove over him again. i don't want to get involved in that legal case but i do remember the pictures. let's go to john heilemann he
. let's go to john here. is this the clown cars as howard beautifully put it backing up over the guy that outdorked them and won the election even though he's no more or less dorky than they were? your thoughts. >> some of these people are not certifiable clowns who are saying these things about romney. i don't disagree with howard's characterization in general, i do think it's fair to say that part of romney's problem was that he was really always an incredibly bad fit with the republican party at almost every level. he was not most of the things the republican party is today nor is he really much of what the traditional party has been. he was not a considerate comfortable populist or part of the republican establishment in d.c. he was an unloved character. the only reason people glommed onto him ever was he was the most electable of a very, very weak field. >> those are the clowns i was referring to. >> of course. of course. but if the only reason the republican party ever had any enthusiasm for him -- and remember in mid-september after the 47% video, a lot of the republican party

for coming on. >>> it's not business, it's personal. that public dispute between john mccain and president obama over susan rice. could it be mccain hasn't gotten over the 2008 election. we're sort of stacking up revenge here on the other side. i got nothing more to say about that. >>> plus spy fall, what we're learning about the affair that brought down the cia chief and perhaps derailed the promoths of the top general. besides complaining about how president obama won re-election by giving away gifts to minorities and young voters, wonder what mitt romney has been doing since the election? david letterman has an idea. >> today mitt romney drew a picture of the house of representatives chamber and gave a state of the union address in front of it. >> and the fourth new entitlement, obama care, we'd repeal that one. >> we have a few more of those sugar plums in the "sideshow." >>> plet me finish with a book about when we had a hero for a president. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> time to bust another 2012 lest myth. the idea took hold that african-americans would not be as f
to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. chris: but john boehner is holding firm against one of the president's main campaign pledges. >> everyone wants to get our economy moving again, everyone wants to get more americans back to work again. raising tax rates will slow down our ability to create the jobs that everyone says they want. chris: in your book, the price of politics, a heck of a book. you talk about how debt negotiations fell apart the last time, we tried it in the summer of 2011. will the speaker, we just saw, have the strength to lead his party even if he has to fight for the tea party? >> their camouflage is tax reform and they're going to do that over time. so the rates could come down. the really interesting thing is when you examine the detail of this, last year they were close. they actually could have worked out some agreement and it blew up because of the president asking for more revenue and that was the limit for them. i think it is a moment of necessity to a certain extent. they can't avoid this now. chris: reporting challeng
the investigation into david petraeus and why it was kept secret until after the election. let's begun with john allen now finds himself in the middle of this growing scandal. he currently sios at commander of nato forces in afghanistan. and jill kelly said that she had been receiving bizarre comments from paula broadwell. what did the e-mails say? they characterize the messages as, quote, flirtatious in nature and inappropriate. we have just learned that two u.s. officials tell fox that it was more than just flirting. they describe them as sexually split and equivalent of phone sex over e-mail. he denies it but something is not adding up. we heard from the father of broadwell. this is something else entirely and the truth will come out. there is a lot more than meets the eye. if we are to believe the story we are told all of this started because paula broadwell sent anonymous e-mails to kelly. it's like cat ties stuff, phrases who do you think you are? you parade around the base. you need to take it down a notch. none of them reportedly referenced violence but the f.b.i. launched a full investi
petraeus sex scandal. general john allen has released some 20 to 30,000 pages of inappropriate e-mails that he exchanged with the tampa temptress, jill kelly. she started the fbi investigation of petraeus in the first place. why are the military generals acting so much like politicians? well, we'll talk about that and all kinds of other issues but first, we get the latest. today's current news update, lisa ferguson's got it out in los angeles. good morning. >> hey bill, good morning everyone. as bill mentioned this petraeus story seems to be getting more complex by the minute. we'll give you more information here because we are continuing to learn more about this whole scandal involving now former c.i.a. director david petraeus and his extramarital affair with the author of his biography paula broadwell. another american is now getting caught up in the whole thing and that is the top commander in afghanistan, general john allen. turns out the pentagon is now investigating him as well for sending inappropriate e-mails
involving david pet -- general david petraeus and general john allen. >> i have a guy who is in my backyard and he is not leaving if you can send somebody out. >> i don't know by any chance, because i am an honorary council general and i have -- >> that was a 911 call she made and has been howed by the news media after she revealed she exchanged e-mails with general john allen. it tons out she is an honorary member and that's not an official post an does not have any special privileges. and we will hear from the president when the president holds a new conference. the questions reporters will want the president to answer, that is coming up next. >>> and a news conference is scheduled about an hour from now. nancy pelosi will announce whether she will continue to hold her she had leader -- her leadership post. democrats gained less than half of the 25 seats they needed. if she gives up her post, she will continue serve as congresswoman of san francisco. >>> students in the university of california are set to have a protest. at the request of governor brown they have postponed a vet for gradu

"ac 360" starts now. >>> we begin as we do keeping them honest looking for facts not offering opinions or playing favorites. we're not supporting democrats or republicans. you can find that on plenty of other cable channels. our goal reporting, finding the facts. tonight our focus, it's over the attacks in benghazi. today, mr. mccain took it a step further enand said because of susan rice's role, the confusing fact, we'll talk to senator mccain in a second so president obama took the opportunity to fire back directly at the senator. >> if senator mccain and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> well, senator mccain heard that remark. 73 minutes later took to the floor of the u.s.
director john dickerson. david, i want to go back to you. someone was just saying your twitter feed-- >> dee dee made that point. i want to make clear-- i'm not condoning what david petraeus did, nor what the woman did. you know, but i do think that people are human. we have worked for human leaders ourselves, dee dee. and we understand that people ought to be sort of-- take it in context and understand when people are human they make mistakes. some of our greatest moral leaders have done that. there's just a new book out about thomas jefferson and his weaknesses he experienced in life. and yet he was a great leader of this country. what i do believe is that we should see it in the larger context and that is general petrace has given this country distinguished service for over 40 years. he has put his life on the line on a continuous basis. he was nearly killed in service earlier on. and he has been a wonderful, wonderful role model for a lot of people, and we ought to understand his humanness and appreciate that. >> i think the american people are willing to forgive leaders for the
's go down now to john in louisiana, is it outen, louisiana john? caller: it's up the northwest corner of the state. host: john, what's your reaction to the fine announcement? caller: well, i'm skeptical as i'm 70 years old, i've seen a lot of the federal government in my life. any time that amount of money gets dumped into the federal government, one must ask who in the bureaucracy is going to decide where that money goes to. i've been reading a lot of stuff about environmental cleanup, this, that and the other. but millions of lives were altered by the loss of income through a lot of reasons, even people that worked in the oil industry. i'm skeptical that those people, in other words the people who have their pocketbooks have been affected, are necessarily going to see any of that money, or at least anywhere near what they lost. and instead it becomes, and to use kind of a slush fund for all kinds of other things that are not necessarily related. i was just reading some of the various, some of the grants that have been given already. those were not the people that were affected on th
after me. >> reporter: and that's just what senator john mccain did a short time later. he has been one of rice fiercest critics. >> first and foremost the president and commander-in-chief is most responsible and i hope the president has no illusions about our view of his responsibility. >> reporter: the president was asked about the calf. >> what i'm not going to do is to extend bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% that we can't afford and according to economists will have the least positive impact on our economy. a modest tax increase on the wealthy is not going to break their backs. they will still be wealthy. >> one of the most frequent criticisms we've heard over the past few years from members on both sides is you haven't done enough to reach out and build relationships. are there concrete ways that you plan to approach your relationships with congress in a second term? >> look, i think there's no doubt i can always do better. i think all of us have responsibilities to see if there's things we can improve on and i don't exempt myself from needing to do some self-reflection and see
john allen. they're speeding up the confirmation process for his replacement in afghanistan. we're awaiting of course for the white house to respond on camera. i can tell you that the briefing will likely focus on exclusively on this issue the fallout from general petraeus and now general john allen. white house released this statement in the early hours of this morning, we havegraphic of it. it says, quote at the question of the secretary of defense, the president has put on hold his nomination of general allen as saceur pending the investigation of john allen. that's coming from tommy vietor. this is coming the days after president obama won re-election. certainly not how the administration envisioned the first few days of the new term. they are certainly stunned by some of these developments and trying to stay focused on the fiscal cliff, that's something that's pending and potentially could impact all americans, however, this is something they'll have to deal with, president obama is set to hold a news conference this week. he'll get a lot of questions about this. about the
, but it sounded condescending. it is like, why are you picking on a girl? he implied john mccain was a coward for physical picking on her when we know that john mccain is anything but a coward. obama is himself hiding behind the skirt of this woman at this time to deflect from the real tragedy and cover up what happened in benghazi. >> seriously strong words for mccain. to say he is incompetent or a cover up, that's amazing. and why can't it be both? >> i cooperate say it better, but if you look at it, is he saying she was a puppet and she was put on television all day every day over the course of the weekend after this attack just for the talking points? that's what we are lead to believe at this point. should she continue in a lull? should she be so privileged to hold that role? >> to put her as the secretary of state -- by the way, how do you think john carrie feels? he is so controversy they still don't pick him. >> he said ambassador rice when she went on these shows she gave basically her understanding of the talent. she said what the intelligence community has been telling them. is tha
a single question, what are you willing to give. you know, when john boehner appears, they say are you willing to accept higher rates. no one says what are you going to do about entitlements or anything, there's no question of the president whether he will compromise and what that would look like. >> paul: steve, what do you think the republicans ought to do here? is there a way out for them or are they going to be pushed back into a corner where they have no choice, but to concede that they have to raise tax rates or else go over the cliff and get blamed for that? >> well, it's a tough situation for them. there's no question about it because as you know, the default position, if we don't do anything is for the taxes to go up on everybody on january 1st, and that's something i think both sides want to avoid. it's very interesting, the thing that happened this week to start the week, was who was the first person that barack obama met with in the white house since his election, the labor unions, the labor block, that tells a lot who is driving policy at least at the start of the second t
